Signed Carl Froch boxing gloves helped raise a total of £1,800 for charity at a golf day at The Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club, organised by G F Tomlinson.
A total of £900 of the money raised was donated to Nottingham-based cancer support charity, Maggie’s, with the remaining £900 being donated to The Colin Bloomfield Melanoma Appeal in Derbyshire.
Professional boxer Froch generously donated a pair of his boxing gloves to the fundraising event, which were sold by auction for £350.
Rob Sharman, framework manager from G F Tomlinson, said: “We’re proud to be supporting Maggie’s which offers a valuable support service to people affected by cancer.
“So many of us are touched by cancer at some point in our lives, so we’re honoured to have raised cash for the local charity that will help the lives of people in and around Nottingham.
“Thank you to everyone who came along to our charity golf day which has raised a tremendous amount for two very worthwhile charities.
“We carry out a lot of work across the Midlands, so we wanted to make sure the charities we selected would benefit the committees we work alongside.”
Helen Studholme, fundraising organiser from Maggie’s, said: “Our centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.
“Thank you to G F Tomlinson for organising the fundraising event and selecting Maggie’s as a charity to support.”
